Judi’s Spiced Pumpkin Bread is the sort of edible gift I want to receive from my neighbor (hint hint) or an Eat Boutique colleague (hint hint hint). You bring the bread, I’ll bring the

We love hearing from Judi and Nicole, because they always dream up such classic yet decadent dishes. This risotto, which is starchy, salty, fatty, and sweet, heralds the arrival of cozy bowls and simmering stove tops – enjoy! – Amy As I write, a dear friend is packing up her whole life here in Portland

To kick off the celebration of seven years of Eat Boutique, we’re eating pie. But not just any pie.

Judi and Nicole know how to warm up what’s turned out to be one of the coldest winters on record around these parts. They also know how to make January all about a little self-love, in the food sort of way, you know. I’m just back from Salt Lake City and cannot wait to mix

Judi and Nicole tackle the book club and, as they do a series of posts on their blog, they’ll also talk food and books here on Eat Boutique. I love a good book club, especially one that involves wine. What’s your book club reading? – Maggie The book club. If you’ve never been in one

I don’t think we can think up enough ways to use up all those gorgeous summer fruits. Judi and Nicole share a technique that just makes so much sense, combining fruit, sugar and a little lemon juice into a sweet sauce for breakfast, dessert or even a meaty main course. I just love these ladies

Spritzer sounds so, girly, I know. But honestly, when it tastes this good, I don’t care. And when it looks this stunning, I want to serve it to everyone. Even the boys. Happy Memorial Day!   – Maggie I was in a restaurant last week for dinner, a gorgeous place with a menu that was
